What is Spiritual Direction?
The Discernment Center is for people who:
- Want to nurture their spiritual well-being and growth,
- Are looking for more peace in their daily life,
- Need to connect more deeply with their true self, one another and the divine.
Our Spiritual Directors
I survived a fundamentalist upbringing and ultimate rejection in the Church of Christ, then walked away from organized religion for a decade; I am now a gay Christian absolutely at peace with who I am and how God created me.
My approach to spiritual direction involves deep listening and reflection and draws upon many Christian spiritual traditions, including Contemplative and Ignation. These spiritual skills are essential to navigating life.

I’m Gail, I was raised in the LDS church and left Mormonism for a new faith home that reflects my personal values and beliefs. I understand the complexities of doing your own faith exploration, honoring our journey forward, and reclaiming our reconstructed relationship with God in whatever way we now understand God or being spiritual. Developing a deeper understanding of our own spirituality is deep and slow work. Spiritual direction is about being listened to and discovering where spirituality and God might be working in your life at this point in time.
I’m in the process of completing the final year of study and practicum in the spiritual direction program at San Francisco Theological Seminary which recently merged with Redlands University. For me spiritual direction is about the relationships we create together and seeing where we’re led. I look forward to meeting you.
